KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Truman Medical Centers stand out for their willingness to embrace the changes unfolding in the health care system, according to a New Jersey physician who specializes in improving care for low-income patients who are chronic users of hospital services.
Dr. Jeff Brenner, founder and executive director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, visited Truman this week. The coalition and Truman are part of a federally funded project led by the Center for State Health Policy (CSHP) at Rutgers University.
